It was sitting on a tree this winter outside my kitchen window in West Virginia. It was the size of a robin with a dark grey body and speckled breast. It also had a red topknot that stood up. The beak was long and dark. Could anyone tell me what it is?

Was it on a branch or clinging to the side of the tree? You say it had a speckled breast? What other color was on it's breast? What other birds were in your yard?
